Default The Incels among us

This is another phenomenon that's become prominent enough in the news to need its own thread.

Yeah, nothing says "worth loving" like mass killing. Really proves you have something to offer.

"I haven't found a pet store to sell me a dog, so I'm going to burn all pet stores" is highly illogical.

And yet still more logical than what's going on here, as one has a reasonable expectation that a pet store SHOULD sell you a dog. Burning them down for refusing is still ridiculous, but being somewhat pissed that they won't sell to you is understandable. The same is not true for what these "incels" are getting pissed about. Nobody has a "right" to get sex. Women turning you down is not unreasonable at all.

And it tells you that these women's creeper-radar was 100% accurate.

No information has come out about this person yet, but just from looking at him, I have a suspicion.

It refers to people who are involuntarily celibate. They're socially awkward, unattractive or both. Most of them are males.

Lately more and more of them have been expressing their frustration by killing people. And sometimes they kill people who they don't even know. As with school shootings, there's a copycat aspect to their behavior.

As a matter of fact, I think that just about every mass shooter who hasn't had a political or religious motive has probably been an Incel.

People are romantically interested in those who have "got game" and who don't act desperate. Incels can't grasp that. They're clueless about their social presentation, and they're also very rigid and stubborn about it. They don't change their approach when they fail. They double down on it.

Even some people who commit violence for political or religious reasons are Incels. Dylan Roof voiced a racial and political motive for killing those people in a church, but out of a group of fifty males, you could easily pick him out as the Incel.

and this is why i pay for it..........................


all that maybe true but i for one don't think calling someone a "Incel" is gonna be the next big thing like calling them "alt-Right" or saying "Fake News" at a story that is full of lies

So, you're saying you pay for sex because if you didn't you would shoot masses of people?

I should add that some of the mass shooters have suffered from major mental illnesses like schizophrenia.

Killing people, innocent people and "getting your rocks off"not only aren't in the same ballpark, but they are completely different things altogether. Like apples and xbox games.

The ears alone were a warning. But I bet he's an Incel too.
